Kagara Emirate citizens have been admonished by the governor of Niger State, Mohammed Umaru Bago, to be more security conscious by limiting their movement to allow the security personnel to carry out their national assignment in the area.
The Governor delivered the counsel as he concluded his tour of the emirates while paying sallah respect to Mallam Ahmed Garba Gunna 11, the Emir of Kagara, at his palace in Kagara.
Bago highlighted that bandit assaults had harmed the Emirate and that limiting movement would aid local security personnel in fending off the threat.
He said, “A lot of our rural residents work in the hinterland, and you find them congregating for weddings and on market days, which is not very ideal for this circumstance as it impacts security operations and monitoring.
Therefore, we’re advising them to limit their travel unless it’s absolutely necessary, and to stay in their designated areas so that bushes can also be cut down.
In keeping with his urban regeneration agenda, he also said that his administration will see to it that the Minna/Tegina road was rebuilt and that a dual highway was built in Kagara.
Earlier, the Governor’s efforts to ensure that the residents of his realm were able to observe the Durbar during the Eid celebrations were praised by the Emir of Kagara, Mallam Ahmed Garba Gunna II.
The Governor was given the customary title of Gorozon Kagara as the highlight of the visit, and he also received twelve additional instruments of power.
